Darrell Issa


Congressman Darrell Issa was overwhelmingly elected in 2020 to serve the people of California’s 50th Congressional District. The district includes the cities of San Marcos, Escondido, Santee, El Cajon, and Temecula and the communities of Fallbrook, Lakeside, Valley Center, Ramona, and Alpine.

A 10-year Army veteran who retired as a captain, Darrell Issa was the founder and C.E.O. of Directed Electronics — a successful car security company based in San Diego County. After selling his business, Darrell Issa won election to The United States House of Representatives in 2000. Later, his peers elected him to serve as the House Committee on Oversight and Reform Chairman from 2011 – 2015. In this position, he personally identified more than 10 billion dollars in government waste, theft, and mismanagement on behalf of American Taxpayers.

Following redistricting, Issa’s seat in the 2022 election will be renumbered as the 48th district. This new district will push further North from San Diego County into Riverside County.

The cities of El Cajon and San Marcos, as well as the Southern portion of Escondido, will no longer be represented by Congressman Issa following 2022 midterms. In exchange, Issa will represent Poway, Murrieta, Aguanga, Lake Riverside, and the rural and desert communities along the San Diego County – Mexico Border beginning January 2023.
